An international charity organisation with headquarters in Calabar, Universal Mercy Fellowship will embark on its annual Charity Day which will involve visitations to select welfare homes in Calabar and other cities in Nigeria and Ghana.
The group has in mind to give support to some local women to start up small businesses to enable them keep up with life and feed their children.
International president of the faith based group, London-based Ambassador Ronke Aluko who explained to journalists in Calabar after their meeting, said the group is presenting soliciting for funds to support the programme, adding that they were processing registration of an NGO to be called Mercy Fellowship Charity.
Aluko said for this year, the group will visit such welfare centres and orphanage like the Mother Elizabeth Obu Redeemed Children Home, Elderly Priests Quarters, the Nyok Esu Maternity Home and the Akim Spiritual Hospital to extend special aids to those psychiatric challenges.
Aluko said, “even though we have challenge of paucity of funds yet we are known for humanitarian services globally.
This year, we are continuing with our charity day which is coming up before year ends on December 1, 2019.
“We have slated to visit many orphanages, old peoples homes, hospital and will certainly give empowerment support to less privileged women who have daily approached us for supports.
“We will get to the destitute and senior citizens”.
Aluko said they are about to complete a two storey building meant to accommodate wayward and mentally challenged persons including those suffering from assorted attacks.
Also speaking, chairman of the world charity day committee, Bishop Eric Iyango said, “we will also reach out to the IDPs in many parts of Nigeria.
“Our branches in UK, USA and Ghana will similarly embark on charity activities”.
